>>> next on "this week in defense news," a roundtable discussion about the future of u.s. military energy use with >>> welcome to "this week in defense news." i'm vago muradian. the u.s. military is the world's largest user of energy. last year consuming some 5 billion gallons of fuel at a cost of nearly $13 billion, 255% more than it spent in 1997. equally important is that protecting that fuel has cost lives. in afghanistan alone, the defense logistics agency is moving 40 million gallons of fuel each month in convoys that have to be defended against attacks. between 2003 and 2007 alone, 3,000 soldiers and contractors were killed or wounded protecting fuel supply lines in iraq and afghanistan. those casualties spurred a major pentagon tribe to develop alternative energy sources while also improving the energy efficiency from everything from future weapons. culminating in the first-ever d.o.d. strategy aim at changing how the department thinks and uses energy. october is energy awareness month and we figured this would be a good idea to get some of the pentagon's top energy minds

have a dream" speech which so many of us remember. as i was growing up, i watched the riots unfold here in washington when he was shot and how much turmoil there was right here in this city. remember, my mother rushed me out of the city to get me away from the riots that unfolded right there as people tried to grapple with the fact that they had lost the legacy and the life of dr. martin luther king jr. i'll tell you, one of the things that comes to mind right now is what he said during that famous i i have a dream" speech, he said i have a dream that my four children, one day my four children will be able to have friends and who will judge them not for the color of their skin but the content of their character. that resonates with me even today with children of my own and seeing how they embrace people from a multitude of lifestyles and races and ethnicities and it just shows you that dream is coming to fruition. but bernice king has more to say about that and what her father's legacy means for her and the world. >> this is a day that all americans can be proud of. may i remind you th

that did so much for this country, let us draw strength from those earlier struggles. first and foremost, let us remember that change has never been quick. change has never been simple or with without controversy. change depends on persistenceç. change requires determination. it took a full decade before the moral guidance of brown vs. board of education was translated ininto enforcement measures of the civil rights act and the voting rights act. those 10 long years did not lead dr. king to give up. he kept pushing, speaking, marching, until change finally came.
